System Change Display DPI Scaling Level in Windows 11

  • Staff
display_scaling_banner.png

Dots per inch (DPI) is the physical measurement of number of pixels in a linear inch of a display. DPI is a function of display resolution and size; a higher resolution or a smaller size will lead to higher DPI, and a lower resolution or a larger size will lead to lower DPI. When a display has a higher DPI, pixels are smaller and closer together, so that the user interface (UI) and other displayed content appears smaller than intended.

Windows ensures that everything appears on the screen at a usable and consistent size by instructing applications (including the Windows desktop shell) to resize their content by a scale factor. This number depends on the display DPI as well as other factors that impact the user’s perception of the display. Almost all desktop displays and most current laptop displays are in the range of 95-110 DPI; for these devices, no scaling is required, and Windows sets a scale factor of 100%. However, there are a number of new devices, particularly in the premium laptop and tablet markets, which have higher displays with over 200 DPI. For these devices, Windows sets higher scale factors to ensure that the user experience is comfortably viewable.

You can adjust the display DPI scaling level in Windows 11 to change the size of text, apps, and other items to appear larger or smaller until comfortable to see for you.

When you increase the display DPI scaling level, everything will appear larger on the display.

When you decrease the display DPI scaling level, everything will appear smaller on the display.

The default DPI scaling level is usually 100% (96 DPI), but can vary to what it shows as "recommended".

This tutorial will show you how to change the DPI scaling level for all or specific displays to make everything appear smaller or larger on the display(s) for your account in Windows 11.


Contents

  • Option One: Change DPI Scaling Level for Specific Display in Settings
  • Option Two: Set Custom DPI Scaling Level for All Displays in Settings
  • Option Three: Set Custom DPI Scaling Level for All Displays in Registry Editor
  • Option Four: Restore Default DPI Scaling Level for All Displays using REG file





OPTION ONE

Change DPI Scaling Level for Specific Display in Settings


1 Open Settings (Win+I).

2 Click/tap on System on the left side, and click/tap on Display on the right side. (see screenshot below)

display_scaling_Settings-1.png

3 If you have more than one display connected to your PC, select a display (ex: "1") that you want to change the DPI scaling level for. (see screenshot below step 4)

If you are not sure which display belongs to what number, then you can click/tap on the Identify button to have each display's number briefly appear on the displays to see.


4 Select the Scale percentage you want in the drop menu. (see screenshot below)

The Recommended percentage is the default scale size.

This setting is stored as the DpiValue DWORD data value in a long subkey per display in the registry key location below.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\PerMonitorSettings

5 When finished, you can close Settings if you like.





OPTION TWO

Set Custom DPI Scaling Level for All Displays in Settings


1 Open Settings (Win+I).

2 Click/tap on System on the left side, and click/tap on Display on the right side. (see screenshot below)

display_scaling_Settings-1.png

3 Do step 4 (set custom scaling) or step 5 (turn off custom scaling) for what you want.


4 To Set Custom Scaling Size for All Displays

This will override and gray out Option One


A) Click/tap on Scale on the right side. (see screenshot below)​

If the LogPixels DWORD doesn't exist, then right click or press and hold on an empty area in the right pane of the Desktop key, click/tap on New, click/tap on DWORD (32-bit) Value, type LogPixels, and press Enter.


4 Select (dot) Decimal, type in a value data from 96 to 480 for the scaling level you want, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot and table below)

custom_display_scaling_regedit-2.png

DPI Scaling LevelValue data
Small 100% (default)96
Medium 125%120
Large 150%144

5 In the right pane of the Desktop key, double click/tap on the Win8DpiScaling DWORD to modify it. (see screenshot below)

If the Win8DpiScaling DWORD doesn't exist, then right click or press and hold on an empty area in the right pane of the Desktop key, click/tap on New, click/tap on DWORD (32-bit) Value, type Win8DpiScaling, and press Enter.


custom_display_scaling_regedit-3.png

6 Type 0 (turn off custom scaling) or 1 (turn on custom scaling) for the value data based on the table below, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)

custom_display_scaling_regedit-4.png

Value dataDescription
0Enter 0 if you used 96 in step 4 for no custom DPI scaling.
1Enter 1 if you used any size over 96 in step 4 for custom DPI scaling.


7 Close Registry Editor.

8 Sign out and sign in to apply.





OPTION FOUR

Restore Default DPI Scaling Level for All Displays using REG file


1 Click/tap on the Download button below to download the REG file below.

Restore_Default_DPI_in_Windows_11.reg


(Contents of REG file for reference)
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"LogPixels"=dword:00000096
"Win8DpiScaling"=dword:00000000

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\PerMonitorSettings]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics]
"AppliedDPI"=dword:00000096

2 Save the .reg file to your desktop.

3 Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.

4 When prompted, click/tap on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.

Hello, :)

Just to verify, did you select "Decimal" at step 4 before entering the DPI value?

It should be 144 instead for 150%.

Thanks for the tutorial Shawn, my Dell XPS 15 9570 15" 4K 3840x2160 screen actually has scaling set to 250% as default and I lowered it to 200% but the text is blurry so I will use this tutorial later when I have more time.

You're most welcome mate. :)

You might also play with adjusting the text size below to see if that may help.


If not, then you can see if using ClearType below may help with blurry text.

@Brink - I already tried the text size when I saw you mentioned it in another thread and also tried the ClearType a few days ago which does not make a difference as the problem is not browsing but the problem seems to be with the text looking like it's a low resolution and have jagged edges with ThinkorSwim and Microsoft Money Plus Business Sunset Edition so it would seem like it's because the DPI went from a bigger number to a smaller number.

I fixed it using the per app method by right clicking on the .exe of the app in question, then properties, then the Compatibility tab, Change high DPI settings, Checking the Program DPI box so it's marked, Checking the High DPI scaling override - Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by: box with the setting on System (Enhanced). I tried it on Application which made 100% of the text clear but the problem was that the top right corner text had something cut off and same with the bottom of the screen which had the lower half of the text missing, the System (Enhanced) only had the title "Portfolio Manager" that was zoomed and blurry so it's a small compromise.

Got a chance to try it out and thanks @Brink because I did option 2 and tried both 125% and 150% and it worked fine. I also tried the tool at Windows 10 DPI blurry / fuzzy text font fix - XP Explorer which I think is really the same as option 2 with 125% and 150% and it worked fine. It's different than doing 200% option 4A and setting that to 200% on the main screen and then doing what I mentioned in #8 as option 2 actually fixes 100% of the text.

Hello, can I get to know if I can set two monitors with different Custom Scaling numbers in Windows 11? Or least one with custom scaling number, the other with pre-defined level like 100%?
At least in Win10 I cannot, system can only set two different pre-defined scaling levels, or same custom scaling number for both monitors. That bothers me quite some time. Thanks!

Hello, :)

You should be able to use option 1 in the tutorial to set the DPI for specific displays.

Hello, :)

You should be able to use option 1 in the tutorial to set the DPI for specific displays.
Thanks for the reply. Do you mean I can only use option 1 to set two separate scaling rate for two monitors with these pre-defined rates? From win10 it is the same approach.
Just want to make sure can I customize different scaling numbers for two separate monitors with option 2 or 3 in Windows 11?

Correct. Only option 1 is available to set for individual displays. The other options get applied to all displays.
